This paper concerns the development of an unified formal modeling framework designed to provide for model sharing, reusability and integration of simulation and optimization methods in order to allow the decision-maker to master the dynamics of complex discrete systems. We should point out that the different steps of problem identification, modeling and application generation use the same integrated formalism and environment. We give the general approach of our methodology and then describe the
